Trent Reznor / Atticus Ross - Pixar's 'Soul' (Original Score)

Availability: OUT OF STOCK

The new Pixar film Soul imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Jamie Foxx plays a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at legendary New York jazz club, The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm – with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig. 

Soul comes from visionary filmmaker Pete Docter, the Academy Award-winning director behind Inside Out and Up, and co-director/writer Kemp Powers, playwright and screenwriter of One Night in Miami. It stars the voice talents of Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett and Daveed Diggs and features original jazz music by globally renowned musician Jon Batiste and a score composed by Oscar-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network). Reznor and Ross composed an original score which drifts between the real and soul worlds. The film journeys from the streets of New York City to cosmic realms and "The You Seminar," a fantastical place where we discover our unique personalities.

The 'Soul' Original Score vinyl edition by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross features 23 tracks.

Trent Reznor explains his process to writing a score: “Our first step is always to listen and really try to understand where the filmmakers are coming from: what they’re seeing, what they’re imagining."

“We spent a lot of time discussing how you’re supposed to feel when you’re first exposed to the Soul world. Then we went back to our studio, which is filled with a variety of real, imagined and synthetic instruments, and spent the first chunk of time experimenting with different arrangements and different instruments and seeing what felt emotionally right to create the fabric of this world.”
